Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡,- and that’s not to cold where you are 😊 ❄ Because here in South of Spain it’s a bit cold at the moment ❄.
It’s actually snowing in Malaga, and it’s just 17 km from my home and the town I’m living in ❄. That’s not very usual here in the area, with snow. The last time I do remember it was snowing here was in the beginning of 2016, but then at the mountains very close to my place,- but still it was on the mountains tops, very high up. Not close to the coast and beaches like now 🏖.
I was working at the homenursery at that time,- and I remember I went into a patient in Mijas Pueblo for taking care of him for a couple of hours in the evening. Mijas Pueblo are “up in the mountains” 🗻. The weather was cold and grey,- and when I was finish with my shift in Mijas and went out the first thing that met me was snow falling down from the sky, and I did find my car covered up with snow ❄. A really strange experience for me here in Spain,- but a very normal one in the wintertime when I was living in Norway 😊.
And of course it’s bit “writing and talking” about the climate changes and climate challenges because of this a bit unexpected weather changes in the wintertime here in South of Spain 🍂🍃. And also many other places in the world as well 🌍. I still think, believe and mean that this climate changes is a natural process, so it’s just don’t “scares” or “worried me me to much. But yes it’s a challenge with this climate changes. When that said,- I don’t mean we shouldn’t think about and don’t take care about our environment. We should absolutely try to do the best we can with that ,- a and we actually also have done a bit of that during the last 30 years too. Okay,- the CO2 the emissions have not changed much over the last 15-20 years ♻️. At the same time, there have been several different measures and improvements in terms of the environment and its preservation 💚. But ….
Like I have mention before in another post,- this weather changes and different climate challenges has happen before,- long before we, people, started “showing off” with all our “make our life easier” things and stuff. Around every 10.000 year the earth has went into a new ice- period,- and before this happens the climate changes. It gets “hotter and warmer”, “colder and wetter”, the weather changes, the climate changes “all over the world” before it gets even colder. It’s a very natural and normal process,- but 10.000 years ago we couldn’t “document” it like we can today 💻 📱 🌐.
But what I believe is that we, people, with all our “clever” ideas and all the “fancy- pancy” things we have made and create during the last 100- 200 years has “speeded” up this natural and normal climate changes and processes,- and yes,- it makes “some” challenges for us all. The people, the animals, the nature 🍃🍂. But it’s not unnatural this climate changes. It’s nothing we can “stop”,- but we can try to do the best to “slow down” a bit so the earth can have a tiny bit of chances to do “this” a bit in it’s own way 🌏.
It’s to much “talk” between the politicians and to little “handlingen”. At the same time – that’s not totally correct- different things has been done for our environment during the last 30 years. I have actually heard about, read about and listen to “the climate crisis” for over 30 years now (from like Bellona, Nature and Youth and several environmentalists I don’t remember the name on at the moment), – and a lots of good changes has actually been done during this years. Step by step, little by little,- and remember, – it’s not all done in a “zip” 😊. So let’s not forget that,- there has been a lots of good changes during the last 30 years for the environment, our environment 🌎. So I m sorry to mention this too (or maybe not 😊),- but when teenagers that even was not born 30 years ago are “jelling and smelling” about “a stolen childhood” I don’t care to much at all. There’s no still no stolen childhood, nothing is stolen at all,- and that’s just because of the different changes for our environment that’s already started in the small 30 years ago 😊. Step by step, little by little,- it takes a bit time to do big changes too,- remember that 😊.
And another thing,- it’s a lots of focus on The West part of the world and “the environment”, but not so much of The East part of the world. If we take a bit better look at The East,- there’s a lots that’s need to be done “over there”. Actually a bit more then in The West. It’s water, rivers, ocean, mountains and last but not at least,- all the big cities in The East 🏯 🌇. There we “talk” environment challenges! Maybe we should try to help The East part of the world a bit too when it comes to recycling and “saving our earth”, working for a better environment? 😊
I do my recycling at my home ♻️ . Take all the paper in one box, all the glass in an other, the plastics and metall in a third and “the rest” in a fourth box,- because that’s the way we are recycling in this part of Spain ♻️. But I do never think about that my car driving does to much “damage” for the environment. I don’t think that if I leave my car at home “I will save the world” 🚗. If I leave my car at home it’s in general 3 reasons for that. I’m walking to my job because of the possibility for some exercises and for saving money at gasoline,- or I’m going to have a glass of wine or two 🍷. Then I can get an argument like “what if everyone did think like you?”. Well,- I don’t think “everyone” are thinking like me in this situation. And I can’t do to much with “everyone else and their thoughts or car-use” anyway. And I don’t think the way I’m using my car or not are the biggest challenge for the environment anyway 🚗. So I use my car with very good conscience ,- even it’s a old car 😊. Because ….
….. it is also about consumption and the shopping, and here are the young people, who scream so loudly about “taking care of the climate” one of the worst one. I haven’t for example bought a lots of new clothes or other things and stuffs or accessories during the last 6 years. I can probably count most of it,- not on just two hands, but still be able to count my “big clothes shopping and shopping of other bigger things”. And I have just travel with plane 4 times during the last 6 years,- and been on a ferry two times. So no,- I actually don’t feel “guilty” at all when I use my car,- or do eat meat either 😊. It’s better I do eat a bit meat then the cows gasses are pollutes our climate. Because a cow promp is really polluting,- that’s for sure – and that’s even a natural promp from the green grass and a cow 🐄.
And,- there’s a couple of other things that actually can destroy our eart, the world, the environment very much faster then not have the focus or to much focus on “a better environment”. There’s big possibility for different kinds of wars ,- atom, biologic, viruses ect.,- and there are different types of illness and sickness that suddenly and very fast “showing up” and actually kills. I just mention it 😉.
Anyway,- it is cold here in South of Spain at the moment, – and I’m very happy that I actually did bring with me some of my winter clothes from Norway even some souls did smile a bit about that when I did bring them with me 😊. The climate are changing, like it has done during many epochs. It is a challenge eith this changes,- of course. But I think it is also a part of a new ice- period this different climate changes. But we people have just “speed” the changes up a bit. And,- it has actually been done a lots of good changes for our environment during the last 30 years 💚.
Well,- that’s my opinion and thoughts about the different climate changes and challenges. Maybe you are agree with me? Or maybe not? Or maybe I even did “touch” a sensitive vein with my thoughts and opinions? If so,- I didn’t mean to do that, and I do apologise for that if so are the case,- this is just my thoughts and opinions when it all comes to all 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. I hope you are not to cold wherever you are ❄. And,- Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.
See you soon 😊
It’s cold in South of Spain at the moment ❄. It’s actually snowing ❄. Not a natural sight in Malaga 🌞- even though it is winter season. Human-made changes, or just a part of a natural process that is “speeded up” a bit by human? 💚 Anyway it’s cold, and its snowing, and a bit stormy around the corners too. It’s a couple of more winter photos from Malaga in my post,- you are very welcome to take a look ❄😊.
